Flow is probably the best state of our consciousness!

Flow state has been with us since the beginning of the human race, we just didn’t know, what it is and how to name it

In the 70s flow state was grounded by an American psychologist of Hungarian descent dr. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. Together with his team, they conducted more than 10.000 interviews with various people from various cultures, rase, social status and professions. They wanted to know, when in their lives do they feel at their best and which activities really made them satisfied. This state of biggest happiness and satisfaction was named flow.

The flow state is determined by 4 components – STER

We talk about a state, where the whole experience becomes fluid and starts running in a current it becomes flowy. This is also the origin of the name since flow is flowy.

Before 1970 many great thinkers of our time have already talked and wrote about flow indirectly. These thoughts were an inspiration for dr. Csikszentmihalyi’s research and they are today the foundation for flow state understanding, based on which also the program of Resna igra was developed.

Proved, defined, and applied the flow state. Biggest global flow state research


Apart from psychology, in the past 10 years flow was also defined by neuroscience. At the personal level the experience of flow can be totally different between individuals, therefore in reality this state is a very unique experience. But what neuroscience has found out is that in flow state the processes in our brain are practically the same for every individual:

Prefrontalni Cortex

Prefrontal cortex, where the highest cognitive functions are performed, shuts down.

Nevro Kemija

The brain gets flooded by neurochemicals, that enhance and lift our well-being: dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine, anandamide, and endorphins, sometimes also oxytocin

Nevro Elektrika

The brain waves are in the gamma and theta frequencies, which is the same as in meditation.


Next to the key thinkers and theoretics of flow, Resna igra content was based on the findings of many organizations, scientists and researchers, which have dedicated their entire academic careers to flow state and connected topics.
